Whiteside Machine Company was founded in 1970 as a general-purpose machine shop in the basement of Bill & Bobbie Whiteside's home. With a strong commitment to customer problem-solving, innovative ideas, and a growing demand for high quality router bits, Whiteside has evolved into a premier manufacturer of woodworking tooling.

Today, Whiteside Machine is still family-owned but has now grown to occupy a 40,000 square foot manufacturing facility and produces a complete line of solid carbide and carbide tipped router bits. Whiteside Router Bits are made from solid alloy steel that is precision ground for proper balance, even at high RPM. Each router bit uses high quality, thick micro-grain carbide so that the bit can withstand additional sharpening.

Whiteside Machine is continuously striving to improve their product line through new technology, improved production techniques, and ongoing research and development efforts. Their rigid quality control and precision manufacturing techniques have given Whiteside Machine a trusted and respected name amongst woodworkers and industry professionals.
